Sunday was an epic, epic day for laundry, and I finally got around to washing some thrifted stuff. This dress was from the Magical Mystery Thrifting Trip from a few weeks ago. I've been drooling over lacy little dresses on Modcloth since last summer, but since my budget has been a bit tight, I opted not to buy one for full price. Which, in the end, was a pretty good idea, because this dress was about 20 bucks, in perfect condition, and exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. There isn't really any shaping to the body save for a gentle A-line, so I used my little red bow belt to cinch it in. It's been cold and rainy, but I wanted to add a little kick to my week so I wore some tights and knee-high boots for warmth.
It's not the best color on me, but I still love it. It has just a touch of '60s sensibility without being too literal, and it's very comfortable despite looking pretty sharp.
